I saw a video about the camera I had made for me back in 2011 this morning, the Aero-Liberator. Mine was the 13th one that was built. I don't think I've used it since, but perhaps that is how I will get back into photography once again. You can't take many photos with it at a time unless you have a lot of film holders loaded. I don't have that many film holders, so I could take maybe twelve to fourteen pictures at a sitting. Then I would have to develop them one or two at a time as it is 4x5 film and I would be working out of a dark bag. It sounds intriguing, though.
The fellow in the photograph re-makes cameras, too, right here in town. He saves my cameras all the time.
Oh. . . here is the video (link). My image is at 4:09. I know. I didn't get any credit in the video for my image, so I wrote to the camera maker. WTF? I want to be famous like Burnett and Tucker, too.
Enough of that, though. I am making myself look cheap. I am up early in the dark. Today I return to the factory. Factory Life. I couldn't sleep last night for the first time in weeks. Woke up every hour. Anxiety, I guess. I have loved the lazy life, eating, watching movies, sleeping in. I am ready for a whole lot of that. Rather. . . .
Those boys at New 55 better send me some film soon. I'm ready to rock the world.
